    How to Invite the President to your Wedding

    invite the President to your weddingSo I instagramed this picture yesterday and had a lot of people asking me how I got a note of congratulations from President Obama. So I thought I would share my secret: I invited him!

    Yes, you can invite the President of the United States to your wedding, and he (aka an intern) will send you a congrats! We were married during an election year, so this was even cooler to me then. If you want one too, here’s what you do.

    Send a wedding invitation (I had ours addressed by our calligrapher with the rest of our invitations) to the following address:

    Honorable Barack Obama and Mrs. Obama
    The White House
    Greetings Office Rm. 39
    1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
    Washington, DC 20500

    And the photo above is the response I got, which is a treasured keepsake. I think it is something my kids and grandkids will love too.

    I’ve also heard of people inviting other celebrities, and even Mickey Mouse (for those of you who are Disney superfans). Who would you invite to your wedding? Dream wedding guest?
